Bedroom Makeover on a Budget

I was a bit of a witch with a ‘b’ yesterday.I screamed and hollered about not being able to do IT ALL.I think I may have thrown the top to the blender across the kitchen. Or that could have been the day before yesterday, but I definetly threw it.I witched and moaned about football being on the television ALL THE TIME.And then I watched two games in a row because I was too lazy to get up and change the channel.After giving Warwick a glaring look, a huff, and an exhausted roll of my shoulders he Read more […]

The Easiest Way to Hang A Collection of Pictures

Dear Warwick,I know you don’t think I listen to you.  And you might be a little right.  It isn’t that I don’t want to listen to you. I DO. I really do. It’s just that so many things are going on at every second of the day that I don’t really focus all that well. I’m trying, though. I promise.And even though I’m not the world’s best listener, and you find yourself repeating the same thing over and over again, I do HEAR you, which may or may not be the same thing as listening to you.So. . .on this Read more […]

10 Things to Make and Do for YOUR YARD this Halloween!!!!

I don’t like it when other people talk sternly to my children. I don’t like it when other people reprimand, scold, or otherwise act as if they are in charge of my children. When another person (that is not myself, my husband, or my mother) raises their voice to any one of my offspring, my chest pops out, grows muscles (in a feminine way) and turns a grotesque shade of green. A guttural growl overtakes my breathing. My eyes become slightly inset, and a darkness hovers. And. . . .. I want Read more […]

Meal on the Go! Simple Summer Sub Sandwich

Guess what everybody.It’s the summer.It’s Summer Olympics Time!And Black People Can’t swim!Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of footage on how black people can’t swim.I think it’s because (fantastically enough) there are three black swimmers on the 2012 US Olympic Swimming Team, which is adding much needed diversity.I think the point the media is trying to make is that a high percentage of black people don’t know how to swim. Which, my friends, is very, very different from flat out NOT BEING ABLE Read more […]

Completely Easy Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Why Marriage is not so hard if you don’t mind working your tail off

I think I suck at a lot of things.Like listening.  I don’t listen well. I always intend to listen when the speaker opens their mouth, but then sounds start coming out which remind me of something else, and soon thoughts pop into my head about weeds, tomatoes, Popsicles, and toilets and before you know it, the speaker is like, “Right? WELL. . . .WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?”  And I haven’t a damn clue.Yesterday at 6:03 am I groggily asked Warwick if mosquitoes were rampant outside, because I was Read more […]
